My RAW files do not show up in Explorer (XP SP3), I've tried to get them to, but no avail.
However
DNGs DO!!!
Convert to DNG to see your RAW files in explorer!

It is a registry hack.

Chris

I suspect that at some time you may have installed a Codec for DNGs, but not one for the raw files. I would add though, that expecting users to do such things seems bizarre.

It's often easier to see a thumbnail in explorer as a quick search tool, without opening LR - esecially on my slooooooooooow laptop.
Cannot find one for CR2 files (450D)
